Emma, a timeless love story from one of the most widely read writers of all time, is now a musical and will once again entice modern audiences to fall in love with one of Jane Austen's most adored characters. Emma, a beautiful and clever young woman who prides herself on her matchmaking ability, is preoccupied with romance yet is clueless to her own feelings of love. When she takes on a young friend as her latest project, her well-intentioned efforts misfire, leading to a whirlwind of complications. Deliciously charming, this new romantic comedy, from Tony Award-nominated composer Paul Gordon and directed by Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun, brings Jane Austen's masterpiece to musical life.
